After knocking our heads for food-o-thoughts, working on divergently rich ideas, we reached a converging conclusion to link the socially-powered virtual world to the populistic real world. Knowing the power of the internet, we adhere to build a food-o-solution website/application named as 'Food|booK' which would cater to the needs of uprising 'Philanthropy'. It is a maneuvered step to feed a massive figure of 9,000,000,000 people. The website/application will be available to most operating systems. Under high surveillance information regarding world food figures would be shared, discussed upon and practical solution reached. Varied discussions on hunger crisis would form our daily cup of coffee. Disrupting the status-quo would be dealt with as equality is what we believe in.
The website/application will focus upon chaining people virtually and enhance the Emotional Quotient with the help of food-o-credits. The website/application will serve the purpose of awakening the consciousness of people. Sharing information online would further enhance the concept of e-learning and factual evidences put up in the ionosphere would promote the cause. Food waste and consumer issues would be the saucer-pan of our meals.
Food|book would try to uplift the communities from the debt of malnourishment with a unique concept of donating calories.
Big ideas are not formed, they develop, when they develop, they build change, until change they flourish---Food|booK.
World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that Obesity has reached epidemic proportions globally, with at least 2.8 million people dying each year as a result of being overweight or obese. According to UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), there are 870 million undernourished people in the world today. The vast majority of hungry people (98 percent) live in developing countries, where almost 15% of the population is undernourished.
13.1% of the world’s population is hungry. That’s roughly 925 million people who go undernourished on a daily basis, consuming less than the minimum 2,100 calories a day.
The unbalanced state of our society, the deteriorating condition of nourishment amongst children, unequal distribution of resources and lack of awareness amongst the masses motivated us, to work for the society, for the sake of people, for the social welfare. Happiness is something that cannot be measured as it is infinite and the positive energy, which is generated from it, is the fuel of our thought.
Spreading happiness multiplies itself many folds.
Thou art we decided to be the change that we want to see in this world.
Balancers trying to reduce hunger crisis, are developing a food-o-social website cum application which would elaborate the concept of social inclusion. We are availing an opportunity to the people, to be recognised for the efforts they have put, to uproot the status quo or directly or indirectly benefitted the society.
The website-cum-application will generate awareness and provide practical solutions to the issues, the ones we face today. We have made it interactive enough with videos, photos and facts. Thoughts related to food would be put in, and the use of green efficient technology would be promoted. Varied discussions aimed at finding practical solutions would be held; the power of communication of social media would be utilized to disseminate answers and solutions.
Socializing Food Credits
The credits are a number platter and we are counting them as SFC number. Socializing Food Credits is the road-o-meter to be able to be recognized for your humane inputs.
Your contribution in providing practical solutions and raising awareness to deal with the epidemic obese and malnourishment will contribute to your SFC.
Donation made much more handy and innovative, as you could donate calories which directly contribute to your SFC.
Our website/application will provide information regarding the world food structure and you could even search for your dish. With your dish in your gadget, check out it’s nutritious values and its history and even donate.
Thus, SFC accounts for your credits which one builds from gathering food-o-information, rendering solutions to world food issues and uniquely donating calories.
The concept of SFC lies in the idea that not only will it give the user the power to bring a paradigm shift at their own level, but it will also provide the user with a better edge over others in terms of social life.
The idea behind bringing the SFC into our system is to motivate people to be the change they want to see in the society. It’s a safe, secure and transparent way to address problem from multiple angles, which will uproot the status-quo.
Innovation & Donation
We want to aware people who are over-eating, that by donating even a fraction of kilocalories, they can also save lives; by limiting the consumption of those calories that are in turn posing a threat to their own lives as well! And these efforts do not go unaccounted. We appreciate these efforts and ultimately boost their social status by crediting them with SFCs.
In the fast moving modern world, there are many people who know about the crisis but do not have ample time to work for it. Thus, Food-o-donation was devised. Food|booK simplifies the concept of the donation and tries to carry it forward in terms of calories. Through this, we are also letting people know how much calories they are consuming and donating. A real-time display of cumulative calories donated and how many lives saved so far are also featured on our platform.
On our website/application a collection of different cuisines will be provided. On the go you will encounter your favorite hot dishes, which you would love to eat. But going with the present situation, one can inquire about the nutritious values and donate the amount of calories or a part of calories from his/her favorite hot dish. The amount of calories donated is directly linked with your SFC, which grows as you accelerate your efforts like a speed pedal.
Cartel of NGO’s
Balancers are in contact with various NGO’s and looking forward to form more ventures. The calories collected would be directed to NGO’s in a transparent and efficient flow, further directed to those in need. To enhance the transparency of our venture, regular feedbacks in the form of visual would be linked up to our platform. To deepen our horizon, a pool of NGO’s would be formed, which will promote an idea of community building. In a way, different NGO’s working for different specific purposes can help other NGO’s working for a cause.
Short Term → Long Term
Connect people→Make a Social platform
Educate the masses → Empower the community
Food|booK focuses on generating, operating and spreading solutions by creating a Global Alliance. The world constantly needs to have a clear idea about how serious, various issues regarding food are becoming and that is how Food|booK evolved. The innovative idea behind donation is not to feed the hungry, but it’s to uplift their status, from those poor conditions, thus, empowering poor societies. This leads to the ultimate goal of uprooting the status-quo and thereby promoting an idea to feed a massive population of 9 billion.
